Most common treatment for dental caries are following:
It is a root canal procedure for pulp tissue infected irreversibly or necrotic as a result of caries or traumatic injury. X-rays are taken to look for any infection in surrounding structure and to check the morphology of tooth. It is done under local anesthesia. It may need 2 to 3 visits of 30 to 40 mins for each session. A hole is drilled, fine instruments are used to remove all the dead and necrotic pulp from the crown and root portion of tooth. It is then cleaned, disinfected and prepared for filling with material that can be reabsorbed by the body.
Pulpotomy is done to save decayed infected tooth, coronal part of pulp is removed and replaced with medicated fillings. It is minimally invasive procedure to perform on child’s primary teeth with extensive caries without evidence of root pathology. This procedure usually doesn’t need local anesthesia and takes 20 min. to 30 min.
